The model re­veals why she isn’t afraid to speak her mind

TEDDY QUINLIVAN IS A ‘STRAIGHTFORWARD BITCH, who stands up for what’s right and what’s just’. Her words, not ours. The Mas­sachusetts-born model has walked for Ver­sace, Louis Vuit­ton, Dior and Mai­son Margiela and ap­pears on Models.com’s Top 5O Models list. But what makes Teddy a real rar­ity is how open she is about her life, from her sex­u­al­ity to her ex­pe­ri­ences with sex­ual as­sault. In Septem­ber 2O17, she re­vealed she was trans. ‘I came out be­cause I’m an hon­est per­son. I think what the world needs right now, in a time where peo­ple watch the news and re­ally don’t know what to be­lieve, is a big fat dose of hon­esty.’
